Shoes . . . OMG . . . Shoes
I BOUGHT WEDDING SHOES! I have been looking since I bought my dress. But the only thing available in the summer is sandals. Then the only thing available in the fall is boots!! Also, even though I usually wear 3-4″ heels (Matt is 6′-3″ and I’m 5′-5″), I didn’t think that I wanted to wear them for hours and hours of standing at the wedding. I found some really great shoes, but they were all 4″ heels! ARGH!! Anyway, I finally found some, although it was a bit of a “saga” (if you can call 20 hours a saga). Here goes:
Sunday, while visiting with Jen and Kathleen in Minneapolis, we decided to kill some time at the Mall of America (AKA Big Dale). I had a Victoria’s Secret gift card to use (no I’m not posting my underwear), and after that I decided to head into Nordstrom to peruse their shoe department. Alas, no luck. So we headed to Macy’s. At first it looked bleak, but then . . THERE THEY WERE. Capparos Nahla in Marine. I asked for my size (which is a 9), but they only had an 8 or a 10. So I tried on the 8′s. They were too small, but they were so cute. Here’s the picture from Macy’s in MSP:
Unfortunately, the shoes were NOT available online, and there were no 9′s in the Twin Cities area. I told the guy that it was okay; I lived in Boston. We then spent some time searching for them on the Internet (Zappos failed us). I could only find them in black, white, or ivory. When I returned to Boston on Monday, I felt the shoes slipping away (if they didn’t exist, I needed to move on). So at lunch, I drove to Macy’s to find them. Of course, that Macy’s only had them in black. I was then told that they didn’t exist in New England in blue. But she gave me the number of Macy’s in Danbury, CT. I called them when I got to my car, and the shoes were on their way!
THEY ARRIVED TONIGHT!
I love them!
Now I have multiple “something blue”s (shoes, garter, engagement ring). Lots of new stuff, and I have something old. Still looking for my something borrowed . . .
YAY!! What do you think about the trend for colored shoes?
